    Cloning win 10 to an internal ssd via external usb rack connection


    Hi!

    My friend got a very old computer and tomorrow i have to set up a new computer for her, and i will have to migrate the win 10 from the old IDE HD to the new SSD. I cannot connect the old HD to the new computer and vice versa (no connectors on motherboards).
    Is there any free tool that can format, and clone win10 system partition if i put the new SSD into an external rack and plug it via USB into the old computer? Will this new ssd be bootable if i remove it from the rack after the process and put it into the new computer as an internal SATA HD?

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Unable to Boot to Windows 10 after Cloning old SSD to new SSD

    Hi,

    I'm not using the SATA ports. I'm using M.2 with the SSD, and the external SSD is connected to my PC using USB. My MB only has only one M.2 socket, so I can only plug in one SSD at a time. (I bought a wrong adapter that doesn't work with NVMe) So I cloned
    my old SSD to an external SSD (Samsung M3 Portable SSD), and then swapped the old one, cloned the external SSD to my new SSD.

    I tried AOMEI too, but the free version does not come with disk clone functions. I would probably try Macrium Reflect as suggested above. Thank you!

    Cloning SSD via External USB Drive


    I just acquired a second laptop identical to the one I have. I will have exactly the same configuration on both and keep them in sync. I need to clone the SSD to the new SSD, but I don't have access to a desktop or eSATA port.
    Is there a way to use Macrium Reflect to clone the SSD to an external USB drive and then clone the USB drive to the new SSD? Caveat: old SSD 256GB, new 128GB, but the old has much less than 128GB filled.

    If not, any other suggestions I could accomplish this?

    Migrating to a SSD - clone or fresh install?

    Also to make it clear when cloning both the source (your hard drive) and the destination drive (your SSD) must both be connected.

    When Imaging only the source (hard drive) and an external USB drive to store the image need be connected. After the Image Backup is created you remove the hard drive, connect the SSD and restore the image (using the image backup product's "Recovery Media"
    which you need to create and boot from) to the SSD. Most products also have a "SSD" option check box to properly configure the SSD offset.

    You can read a product's user's guide to see exactly what step are required for cloning or imaging.
